This year Jonah was old enough to get dressed up and walk around, but we figured he wouldn't really get the whole 'Trick or Treating' thing. So I looked around and found that from 4-6pm in Historic Ellicott City all the shops gave out candy. I figured that would be a nice laid back thing to do. We got there and it was PACKED! We had a blast! Jonah was a chicken, a hand-me down costume we got from my friend Melanie, and it was a HIT! He got more comments and people would stop us to take his photo. What a fun Halloween we had!

My cute chicken!

Meeting friends along the way.

He figured out the candy thing pretty quickly, not that he got any ;)

Trip to the beach

Jon, Jonah and I finally got down to the beach for an overnight. His parents have a condo in Ocean City and we like to go in the off season so we can take the dogs on the beach (they aren't allowed on the beach during the season.) We had a great time. Jonah had never been to the beach, so the sand and the ocean were new things. It was chilly, but pretty mild for November, so we spent most of our time down on the beach. It was a short trip, but a ton of fun and something we are going to do much more often.

Checking out the sand.

What are those bubbles?

A big one!

Flying kites with dad.

They were doing some construction on the beach, so we spent
a lot of time checking out the BIG trucks. Jonah still loves trucks.

Holiday Fun!

We've been having a busy holiday season. Feels like we have things going on every weekend!

Thanksgiving was fun. My parents came up and we all went up to the Schiavi's (Jon's parent's neighbors) They have a great house, big enough for all of us!

Jonah's place, so cute!

Eating a big Thanksgiving meal, he was a huge fan of the cranberries.

Jonah and I took a trip to the Festival of Trees. We had a great time, there were all types of Christmas trees, a great model train, Merry go round, moon bounce even a pony ride. I think all of Baltimore decided to go the same weekend we did!

Jon and Jonah met some friends to go to the Baltimore Symphony and Orchestra's Nutcracker (for kids). Jonah LOVED it! Jon said Jonah was absolutely fixated the entire time. The show lasted about 40min and the dancers did a shortened version of all the Nutcracker songs. They said it was fabulous and would recommend it to everyone!
